Well, for one, the reason it's able to run on older graphics hardware is that the resolution of a TV is far, far lower than a computer monitor. Standard definition TV is 720x542, and this makes for a far easier rendering load than the 1024x768 that most PC gamers play at.[\quote]

Thats bull. I dont play my PC at that res and if i had a geforce 2 it wouldn't run HL2! The xbox can handle it due to its overall architecture not just its components. They miss the point that PCs FFSA for free.

Controls for GTA on PS2 or Xbox win hands down over the PC versions. I've played San Andreas extensively on Xbox and PC, and although you can master the controls on both, it takes far more work on pc. So i just used my modded xbox controller on the pc to cut a deal that worked for me :D .

Adding on to this, also the Xbox doesn't need to load an OS like Windows and the games are designed to run at one speed, xbox speed. So game creaters can make there games alot more effieciently (sp?) for an Xbox then a PC. Xbox is better at gaming in terms of being efficient. PC hardware span (CPU type/speed, video card speed/type, etc) and purpose is not just gaming, so it's not as efficient. This is why you can play Xbox games on such old hardware. (the resolution plays a big part to, but hey, it's good enough for me)
